  • When it comes to sales, your intention and mindset towards your client is equally, if not more important, than your skillset. Most sales training focuses on objections, but there’s no magical phrase or enchanted script that can make objections vanish into thin air. Focusing almost exclusively on the objection, often means the attention is placed more on what is most important to the seller, rather than the client; which is one reason why this type of training fails. When you have a REAL conversation with a client, but you present yourself as a REAL person who is sincerely willing and able to solve their problem (as opposed to a salesperson trying to sign them up for something), then you expand their intrinsic motivation and, in turn, alleviate the weight of their reluctance.L

  • How does your body move? Unfortunately, most people have trouble where it matters the most. The hip and shoulders are designed to be some of the most mobile areas of the human movement system, but they often lock up, creating a cycle of improper movement patterns and injuries.

Learn how to quickly identify these patterns, and how to help address these areas with advanced foam rolling techniques. Using the new MB5 ball, this approach is focused on creating the myofascial relationships necessary to optimise movement, prevent injury, and prepare the body to perform at its best.WS
